>> hawaii actually said -- actually, you need to send us why you wouldn't think that the information we've already posted isn't enough. and that just meant more paperwork for him and he had to explain his stupid position and why, by the way, anybody who moves from hawaii to have their driver's license nullified instantly because one standard cannot be applied to one person versus somebody else. >> stephanie: he's not a birther himself. >> no. >> stephanie: at least i hope he was. [ wah wah ] >> stephanie: he said he was doing his job going over the ballot and responding to constituent's concerns. >> ken has been a nut job. jon scott, he's a fox news -- he's just a regular news -- straight down the -- news anchor. >> there are some observers who say you know that cory booker made the president essentially look bad. that he looks like a newer hipper younger more honest

who was president during the time the stock market went from 6500 to 12,000 you know, would get any credit for manufacturing coming back and for jobs turning around. >> stephanie: did you hear what marsh said? mitt romney's whole foreign policy experience consists of frenchmen into joining his cult. [ buzzer ] >> whatever. >> stephanie: okay. donald trump on cnn. >> did he so well actually that he set records over there and that's what we with need in this country. you look at what china is doing and opec doing to us. you look at what virtually every country is doing us to. we need somebody that has this ability. his record was great. he did an amazing job. then just take a look at solyndra and some of the deals this country has been making over the last couple of years. it is disgraceful. >> look at all of the jobs he created in china. >> stephanie: that is incredible. he did well for bain.
that's the point. he didn't do well for a lot of the companies they took over. >> that's not true, steph. they did very well for local small businesses like banks in the cayman islands. those are small businesses. and by parking a lot of his he made dissecting companies like they were waiting for a heart transplant -- >> our mailboxes. that's the smallest business you can have. >> stephanie: solyndra thing makes me crazy. it is like first of all, so what are you saying? there are some winners and losers in business? don't look at what bain took over. >> yeah. because what's the record for the green initiatives that the white house has put together? one out of 25? >> pretty damn good record. >> bain's record. >> i think two of them managed to survive. >> stephanie: like the auto rescue, all he can do is yeah, that was my idea.
>> except for the fact that he left out the only creditor of note could be the federal government because there was no money to be had to do a managed bankruptcy, period. the idea he was for bankruptcy at the time yeah but you were for the kind of bankruptcy that makes them go away. not managed, not until they get back on their he means cave them in. zero them out so they can't come out. >> zero out detroit. >> stephanie: greg. >> in the last couple of weeks we know how president obama personally feels about gay marriage but do we really know how he feels about abortion? at this point you kinda gotta wonder about a woman's right to choose. that's what they always say. i want to know what he thinks about abortion and i wonder if it is just because gays have deeper pockets than fetuses. >> stephanie: wow! well he's pro-choice. he's always been pro-choice. >> i've done red eye and i'm
here to tell you not only is greg not give a crap about gay marriage, he's another one of the right-wingers who pretends to care on the air. but i guarantee he is pro-choice or just doesn't care that way either. >> stephanie: what does he mean he doesn't know how the president feels? >> he's just trying to drum up there. >> no, he isn't. he's reading the talking points he's been given because they moved him from the midnight slot to being on during the day and this is his -- this is what he has to do. >> that's the role he's playing. >> that's it. he's full of beans. >> stephanie: we end with rush limbaugh. how, on a scale of one to whatever -- >> one to 500 pounds? >> stephanie: how creepy is this with a 14-year-old girl that called his show. >> my name is katie. i'm 14. i'm not sure if i qualify to be a rush baby or a rush babe. what do you think? >> you're 14? >> i'm 14.

[ applause ] >> stephanie: well played. okay. >> he was talking about judith miller. >> stephanie: kevin in texas. you're on "the stephanie miller show" with hump days with hal. >> caller: hi, steph. i'm an election judge beginning in 2000. there's things that democrats need to know if they want to get counted. all right because of the census and more importantly, the election in 2010, a lot of
states read, the precincts may not be where they used to be so if you go there and you're in the wrong precinct, the crew will also be republican. they don't have to help you. >> wow. >> caller: they'll try to put you on a provisional ballot. provisional ballots do not count! they are never counted. ever. all it does, if you look at the front, it is a voter registration card. all right. so then when they register you to vote and they throw them away. if you vote absentee, they're only counted if it is within 1%. try not to do that. if you're in the military it never counts. all right. >> stephanie: i gotta say, they're trying all kinds of stuff. this one i just heard. someone wrote pamela i do not know if this is true. her friend who lives in wisconsin, she mentioned in the janesville wisconsin, paper, there is a notice stating the
name of district teachers who signed the recall petition and listed their salaries and it included a form for parents to give to their school requesting their child not be put into class with a specific radical teacher. i don't know if that's actually true. it is unbelievable. >> a radical teacher. >> i think that teacher might be a lesbian. >> my son came home from school and said his teacher was radical. >> stephanie: can we get her in an electrified pen instead of a classroom? scott from california. >> caller: hello. you quartet of sexy and smart. the guy that just called from texas made a great point. this is something i was thinking that was mentioned earlier in the show about taking the government apart from the inside out. don't you guys think that -- let's be conspiratorial here for a second and don't you think the republicans know that in the long run there's no way that mitt can win so what they're going to do is they're going to
aim downticket and try to effect councils and things like that. they know -- >> i bring that up at sexy liberal show. we talk about that. he's been the -- he's the ronald mcdonald of this organization. it has no effect on what they're actually doing. they're going for school boards. they're going for state legislators and judgeships in mass. and they figure those are the ones you pay the least amount of attention to and this artificial need for balance that some people have is they'll vote for obama and then go -- there should be some republicans in there. they'll go the low end and they'll just automatically check off some people or a guy who will run as an independent who is actually a republican just running as an independent because he's embarrassed by the party. but he's -- his plan and it will more than likely be's, will be to -- will be's will be to affect the limited government plan which is pulling the rug out from under everything. >> stephanie: we with need helpers like jill in ithaca who is going to wisconsin to help.
hi jill. >> caller: yes, going by train. challenge other people to do the same. this is the crunch time guys. if we don't do it now, when? and the guy running against him is barrett. i don't hear that much. vote for barrett. >> stephanie: 29 minutes after the hour. gwen moore from the great state of wisconsin next on "the stephanie miller show." vice president al gore joins jennifer granholm. >>we're just getting started. >>the state of the 2012 campain. brought to you by spiriva handihaler.
i have the most common type of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa, there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines
you take any planned medical or dental procedures and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa.

[ ♪ circus ♪ ] representative gwen moore who voted no on the fake violence against women act. republicans, it was unbelievable. she said this fake violence against women bill does not only rolls back current versions to help victims of domestic violence. it ignores groups of women under the republican bill gay and transgender women and immigrants are left unprotected.
the partisan given is not what was meant to be accomplished. representative gwen moore joins us now. good morning representative. >> thank you so much for having me stephanie. >> stephanie: thanks so much for coming on. i've seen you on tv talking about this. you've been so impassioned. you said it wasn't a game when i was abused. it is not a game now. so you speak from experience. >> oh, absolutely stephanie. i wish -- i swear i wish that i could say the abuse that i suffered is something that's rare but it is not. certainly sandy adams, the author of the violence against women acts bill was a victim. victimization of women is as american as apple pie. i think people accept it as you know men's right to passage, men's rights as boyfriends and husbands. i even had a minister you know, once preach in church that he
did not want men calling him at 3:00 in the morning asking him reverend where's that passage weis obey your husbands. weis obey your husbands as someone had once done. he admonished the parishioners to note please do not call me in the middle of the night asking me for that reference to be misused. i think that you know, that this bill is very, very frightening. i'm 61 years old stephanie. and so i've experienced abuse from you know for as long as i can remember back in childhood, age 4 and 5 years old. all the way through as a young adult. long before -- 20 years before the violence against women act was enacted on a bipartisan basis. and many of the provisions that were in this law are in current law because this hasn't passed are in current law, would have
helped me and a number -- helped me in a number of ways. it would have provided prosecutors with the tools. it would have educated prosecutors. educated folk. there was no such thing as hot lines and domestic violence shelters. back in the '70s and '60s and '50s when i was being abused. and this bill really triggered and restimulated some terrible memories that i had of being abused. i told the story on the floor of having been raped, a young man came by the house and you know, agreed to take me to the chicken shack to buy some fried chicken. and instead took adetour behind some dark buildings, raped me, choked me choked me. almost to death. and i did the right thing. i went to the hospital. they did the rape kit or the
examination. i went to the police. filed a lawsuit. went to court. and stephanie, i was on trial. they talked about how i was dressed, the fact that i had teased him. i had gotten in the car with him. how i had a baby out of wedlock. i was on trial. he was of course found not guilty. the violence against women act reversed all of those kinds of things and certainly you know, this bill rolled back in a number of ways. as a watch color and as a minority i'm particularly offended by what it does to women in the shadows women who are minorities. >> stephanie: well, congresswoman, i think that your personal story too is so compelling because you know, it also -- you know makes a lie out of -- when people think it doesn't happen to smart women or educated women or -- you're a united states congresswoman and
it happened to you. so as you say to now like try to -- i mean this should be something that's nonpartisan. house this get to be partisan? the violence against women act? since when? >> you know it became partisan because this bill was put into the queue as literally a part and parcel of the whole tea party ideology which is very gendered, which is very anti-immigrant anti-lgbt. and is very male gendered-oriented. as a matter of fact, this bill was altered in ways to please some of the men's groups and i don't knock all men's groups. i think men need rights but there are some very rabid men's groups that weighed in on this. and altered it in a very significant way. for example, there's gender
neutral language in the bill, stephanie. and sandy adams of course, describes this as being a good thing because it doesn't pick one victim against the other victim. what are we pretending not to know here? >> stephanie: that's one of my provisions is where they alert the abuser of an immigrant -- a woman -- since when -- as you said on the floor, the republicans are playing games with women's lives. >> that is very chilling. three women -- you know their member on the other side who was debating me when i was trying to put forth my motion to recommit, talked about some poor woman who was murdered in the parking lot of the police station. >> wow. >> exactly! women are more at-risk of dying when they're trying to get away from their abusers and there's
never a more important time to just believe the victim, give her cover shelter, services, take her at her word than when she's trying to get away because she's more at risk of dying at that point than at any other point in trying to break off an abusive relationship. and this is the point at which they give abusers power. it is chilling! >> stephanie: representative where are we now with this? you obviously voted no as you should have on this. as you say fake violence against women bill. now what happens? >> well the senate, as you know passed the real bill 68-31. every single woman including all of the women in the united states senate, democrat and republican voted for it. we often call things bipartisan when one single person from the other party votes for it. but here's a case.
68-31. clearly a bipartisan bill that comes out of the senate. this bill passed -- my hope is that there is a conference committee where the senate will have the stronger hand and stronger position to be able to say we want our bill to be the bill that gets an up-or-down vote because we have a truly bipartisan bill. and as a matter of fact 23 republicans voted against the fake. -- against the fake bill. we can claim bipartisan opposition to the house bill. and if there were a conference committee, i would certainly fight to try to be on that conference committee. and to fight for the senate's position. and then if the republicans in the house and they are the majority, they clearly have the ability to vote down the
re-authorization of the violence against women act, if they choose then to vote it down, then that will be just more evidence that there is, in fact, a war on women. i know that there are -- there are very many people including democrats who thinks -- who think that it is sort of -- you know lacking in civility. >> stephanie: this is almost a literal war on women at this point. yeah, you're absolutely right. >> i don't know what to call it. >> stephanie: i've done work for -- raised charity -- work for charities for shelters for domestic violence. i think it is an issue that's just so -- you know, it is so resident for so many people. one of the levels is economically empowering women so they don't ever feel like they have to put up with this. but i think this is like a minimum that the law should protect them. i mean this just seems like a no-brainer. i can't believe we're even debating this. >> well, i can't either.
i'll tell you why because it is not as if you know, there were wild-eyed, you know left wing protestors socialists as republicans like to call those of us who are progressive, out demanding these provisions to include native americans who are twice as likely as other women to be abused and beaten. i mean these tribal lands are sanctuaries for abusers because the tribal councils don't have any authority. it is not like you know, they're these wild-eyed communist types that demanded that we include lgbt language in the bill or that we provide more -- or we try to protect young women who are -- particularly at risk on college campuses. these provisions were suggested by the fbi, the department of justice the police.
>> stephanie: all of the socialist groups is what you mean. >> all of the socialist groups exactly. >> stephanie: representative -- thank you so much -- first of all for having the courage to talk about your personal experience with this because i think it is just -- it makes this issue resonate and it is so much powerful. we always love having you on. please come on more often. >> thanks, stephanie. be well. >> stephanie: thank you. representative gwen moore of the state state of wisconsin. [ applause ] >> a member of congress can share a story as personal as that it resonates so much more. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. it doesn't just happen to just poor women or just -- uneducated women or just -- it happens to everybody. god bless her. i love her!

certainly didn't help. richard nixon took every state except massachusetts and the district of columbia. >>current tv's look at campaign ads that changed history is brought to you by spiriva handihaler. if you have copd like i do you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens your throat or tongue swells you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd.
